Former WWE Champion Michelle McCool recently revealed that she has lost interest in professional wrestling over the years. McCool made her WWE debut way back in 2004, after shining in the 'Diva Search' competition held that year.
In addition to being part of a well-known tag team alongside Layla (known as LayCool), McCool has held the Divas and Women's Championship twice each. Michelle made her return to the ring during the women's Royal Rumble match last week.
A guest on the latest edition of 'Busted Open Radio', Michelle McCool admitted that her relationship with wrestling has deteriorated a bit in recent years: "I began to no longer appreciate something I loved madly. It wasn't a feeling I had overnight, it was a two year long process.
I also walked away from this business because I wanted to devote myself to other projects and be with my family."
Michelle McCool made history
During a recent interview with the 'Dallas Morning News', The Undertaker spoke at length about his wife Michelle McCool: "I think she's probably one of the least recognized WWE superstars for what she did while she was there and for the work of struggle he made until women got to where they are now.
Women are pretty much on the same level as men, they main evented Wrestlemania. She was one of them, when she was active with WWE, she was never satisfied with the role they gave to women. She fought. She went back and forth. And to be honest, she never once asked me, she never asked me to go talk to Vince [McMahon] or anything like that.
She always wanted to do it herself. And I just wish people really understood how much she fought for the growth of the women's division." WWE has invested a lot of money in the women's division in recent years, thanks also to the formidable work done by Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey.
Michelle McCool has opened up about her husband The Undertaker's life following his retirement from in-ring competition. “Now it has become a little bit more normal. I think Mark can attest to the fact that there is definitely Undertaker in Mark also.
There’s a whole lot of Mark, but there’s also Undertaker in Mark in real life. Not with us, but when needs be. It was a little strange at first, you know when we filmed The Last Ride documentary, and people really getting a glimpse into who he was."
